The Canik TP9SF 9mm Black is a one-of-a-kind striker-fired pistol. Featuring a 4.46" match grade barrel, the TP9SF also furnishes a loaded chamber indicator, a striker status indicator, and an improved single action trigger.
The TP9SF comes with two mags., poly holster, paddle/belt attachment, interchangeable backstraps, cleaning rod, brush and a limited lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.
I always knew that Turks have large heavy weapon industry but not small arms, until I read it on gunsamerica review for Canik TP9SF. It feels more comfortable than many more expensive polymer handguns in hand when you shooting plus trigger is almost perfect. I took it out of box no cleaning-oiling to range and I went thru 250 rounds of different ammo makers such as Federal 50, Sellier & Bellot 100 and TulAmmo 100 all rated @ 115gr. with zero failure or misfire. At this price it is extremely good deal to pass out. Barrel alone is rated at 60,000 rounds and it passes NATO accuracy test even after 50k rounds. I do wish that they included 3rd magazine instead of a holster but it is still good.
Have had my Canik TP9SF for 1 week and fit and finish are flawless. The grip and ergonomics are 1st rate. Just went to the range this weekend and put 200 rounds through the gun without any malfunction. This is an excellent gun for the money suited for home protection or everyday carry. It is both accurate and fun to shoot.
Purchased 11-3-17. Received shipment 11-8-17 at my range/shop. Took 50 115 FMJ with me to shoot when I picked it up. Awesome trigger, short reset makes my Glock feel like forever for reset. Smooth take up and smooth easy brake. Well made. Easy take down, gun is very Glock like but better. With 4.46 barrel, extremely accurate. 50 out of 50 in the 5.5 inch bullseye at 10 yds first time. Awesome with 2 18 rnd mags. Precision made.
This gun is amazing. Canik used the best features of some great pistols on this. The rear sight is a Glock size. The front...S&W M&P size. The slide has the good looks of the H&K USP. The rest of the gun is modeled after the Walther P99 and PPQ, including the outstanding trigger. The take down is modeled after the Glock but with bigger, easier to grip buttons and it takes Mec-Gar mags. It's accurate and affordable.
The TP9SF was my first CANiK. I have since added the SF Elite and SFX. Mine have all been 100% reliable and extremely accurate. The triggers are amazing, putting nearly every other gun to shame in my personal opinion. For the price you owe it to yourself to try one.
The slide finish - he is comparing a coating on steel to a plastic frame - did you buy a safe queen or a tool
I shoot competition with this gun and have quick changed mags just about one thousand times if you include dry fire with empty mags. I've not had his problem at all including the extra MecGar mags purchased. Never have I needed to hand strip a mag.
The Warren tactical sights - duh -they are not 3 dot but I will say that I have told many that switching from 3 dot to these sights has without a doubt helped improve my aim under match pressure.
The trigger: unless you have a pencil for a finger and hold it in the most un-natural position ever - it will fire. I cannot intentionally induce this trigger safety lever problem he tries to BS the reader with. The gun fires with any normal finger even held as high in the guard as possible. Over 5,000 rounds through my TP9SF and not one single light primer strike. I also reload my own which would should have a higher % of possible failures than factory ammo. Yes it is accurate at 15 yds and also at 25 yds where just last week I nailed 14/16 rnds to the 8 IDPA body circle while under pressure from the match timer.
I saw this review while checking prices in order to buy 2 more Caniks. I am selling my M&P9 and one of my Glocks to fund my new purchases. I am a most satisfied buyer and don't usually write or respond to reviews, but having such dramatically different experiences on almost every one of his points made me wonder if he received a lemon which is extremely rare per the Canik forums, or possibly there is some other nefarious reason.
While the service of the Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore is excellent, I cant say the same for the Canik TP9sf. The cerakote finish on the slide, while no doubt very durable, is glossy, not matching the flat black of the frame. It looks like it was covered with glossy black latex paint. The magazines are advertised to have an anti-friction coating. But only one mag will drop free when the mag release is pushed. The other supplied mag falls only partially down, and must be removed by hand. The sights are very decent, Warren Tactical, but are not the 3-dot sort pictured in most YouTube reviews. Unfortunately, users must remember to pull the trigger from only the bottom curve of the trigger, otherwise the built-in safety lever will prevent trigger travel if the finger is only on the upper half of the trigger curve. Out of the box, the gun functioned well for about 100 rounds. It now delivers periodic light primer strikes, failing to fire with various factory ammo. I intend to send it back to Canik for repair. So far, it seems accurate enough at 15 yards, but overall the quality control seems to lack attention to detail. The trigger safety issue seems to be a design flaw. I am not a satisfied buyer.
